Some short moderate sport climbs and topropes in a beautiful pine forest setting with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, the Channel Islands, Santa Barbara and Goleta. The rock is of decent quality (per SB), and generally contains a bit of lichen due to the lack of traffic.
Driving up Gibraltar Rd from town, take a left at the Gibraltar Road/Camino Cielo "T" and park in a turnout on the left side of the road. Walk back DOWN Gibraltar Road about 100 feet, then take a trail up and to your right. The trail is actually in pretty good condition. Once you climb the small peak and enter a boulder field overlook, use the attached photo to figure out where the climbs are located. The trail continues into the boulderfield, but don't expect much of a trail to or between the individual routes. Some minor bushwhacking will ensue.

The route just to the right of caveman. It starts on a small boulder next to the wall where you can reach up and clip the first bolt from the ground. The start is as hard as it looks. Sustained hard moves end at the caveman anchor. The route is very well protected and can be toproped using a directional bolt found at the top. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
